  • Oftentimes, candidates applying for positions such as ship fitting and pipe fitting also need additional experience. 
  • Must be a fast learner, be resistant on changing weather conditions (continuous working) and have the willingness to work longer hours or even on weekends and on a graveyard shift.
  • Must be a US Citizen or permanent resident and able to pass a background check and drug screening.
